    The “obsessed, ignorant morons who complain” are also known as ‘user feedback’ and are a very useful tool when working with such a large network where modifications to one part can occasionally knock down a piece of software operating on the same data in another part of the system in a way that is difficult to foresee.

    – Views and Visitors are showing the same number on all stats, presumably picking up views rather than visitors for both returned data.

    – Review updates are showing in the total number of reviews, both on the stories and in the Legacy Stats page, and email alerts are working, but new reviews are not being updated to the review page and trying to see reviews for a new chapter results in Reviews not found message, presumably reviews are not being transferred after entry.

    – Data collected for stats is not picking up every view. Chapter views are “skipped over” even when the user reads every one, not sure why, it’s not consistent on the number of chapters or the chapter number either. This particular issue doesn’t seem to be related to the move, it was happening a week before Day 1.

      The review thing is happening to me, but not the views/ visitors thing 😦

    Just had someone post a review and I got a notice but when I try to follow the link it says:

    Invalid Message 3
    We cannot find the review you are replying to.

    That’s good to know. I hope that covers issues with reviews. If there are any. I got an email saying a story got reviewed, but the review never showed up. But anyways, glad to know stuff is being fixed.

    Thanks for getting the site back. But I believe there is something wrong with the stats. Now the user count and page hit counts are exactly the same. Looks like the system can’t distinguish hits by the same user and different users.

    I clicked the little orange “reviews” for a random story that said it had 2 reviews, and the next page said it had none. And on my stories, I got an email alert but the new review didn’t show up when I hit reviews. And these aren’t just guest reviews. Just wanted to say something in case this bug hasn’t come up a lot.

    Okay, when I clicked the Anime/Manga category, the listing for the archives was all to one side (the left). Please can you guys fix this.

    New reviews aren’t showing up despite receiving an e-mail alert of a new review. Additionally, it will not allow me to reply to the review either, saying that the review cannot be found.

    I am failing to get alerts for reviews that my readers say they posted, nor do the reviews show up on the website. Will this problem be automatically solved when the website is complete?

    I’ve been having some issues with the reviews section, it says that there have been five more reviews after my last, but they aren’t showing up and my review is still at the top for me. I’m not sure if this is just something like server lag or an actual problem, but it’s still pretty annoying.

    The views and visitor stats are exactly the same now and that never happens, I always have more views than visitors on the chapters and this is the first time its ever happened. Can you fix that soon so its accurate again?
    When will it be fixed?

    • acaciajules

      09/21/2013 at 1:16 am

      Yeah, that’s way more important than the outages and things not working.

        Don’t be a douche about it, sorry my concern bothers you so much. Its valid, I want to know so get over it.
        Stats I though would be corrected by now and I wanted to know when.

        While they did say stats would be fixed by now they also weren’t expecting that they would have to do some major maintenance work to the servers.

    I’m suddenly getting ads at the bottom of my screen, they obscure some of the site and that’s very, very annoying. Has my device been corrupted or is it something on this end?

      They removed adblocker for one thing. They may be fiddling with ad placement, too, as some have commented about the mobile site doing something similar. If you don’t want to see ads, try adblocker plus. I downloaded that for all my browsers and it’s lovely. No ads at all anywhere!

    I got an “Invalid Message 3We cannot find the review you are replying to” message when trying to reply to a review through my email. This review was signed and doesn’t show up on the site.

    I hope stats and reviews of 09/19 are going to show up, and not lost forever.

    They seem to have fixed the review bug. I know I left a review earlier that didn’t show up at first, but I just checked my Review History and then the review page of the fic, and it was there. Anyone who was having trouble seeing their reviews should try again now. Hopefully it’s been fixed for everyone. 😀

      I have been having the same problem. At first I thought it was my computer but it did the same thing when I tried from my tablet. I read a lot so it’s really irritating.

      I have had the same problem, but don’t get the error when I favorite/follow as part of a review. Just checked my stats though and it looks like none of my favorites/follows OR reviews have actually been recorded since the 15th!

    I got an email alert that told me that I had a new review, but when I went to see it, it didn`t show up on the story! Also, the email told me to log in, even though I was already logged in.

    The reviews are fixed they are showing up but the stats are still not fixed. Views and visitors have been the same since yesterday.Any idea when will this be resolved?

    FP: The visit/visitors count is still off at 0837 PDT. PM and the message window are normal. Email notes are normal.

    I have just ONE view along 09/20, and it’s pretty impossible!!! (especially since I posted a new chapter the day before). Has someone else noticed a strange low count of views along 09/20? I think views of that day aren’t showing up, yet, and also reviews are “somewhere else” (maybe still in the old server?).

    Please fix the ‘All’-filter, too! PLEASE!!!!! (For each category, please. Thank you!)

    When clicked, it’s still displaying the fandoms ranked via story-count and not alphabetically – as would be WAY more convenient and sensible for everyone. (While the stupid ‘K’-count is inaccurate to boot, I fear that one’s gonna stay. T_T I’ve already resigned myself to that but please, pretty please, change that ‘All’-filter stuff back to the way it was before!)

    Thank you very much for your time.

      I second this request/suggestion! Still lists by popularity, and not alphabetically.

    Well here’s the thing, this stupid site deleted my account or something and my story New Dimensions will not be continued because some jerk either hacked into my account and changed the password for there amusement or something went terribly wrong during “repairs” so, joy. I’d make a new account but I’m scared it’ll happen again, so I’m done with this site.

    Stats are still off. Visitors and Views are showing the same still.

    Oookay… Now I’m not sure if anyone else is experiencing this, but…
    Just updated my story and it shows that I’ve got two new rewievs, yet it doesn’t show up in my email or the actual reviews page… Didn’t have the same problem only little while ago…

    09/21/2013 at 11:30 pm

    I’m still having the stats the same, views/visitors are exactly the same for over a day now and I know its a glitch that hasn’t been fixed because that never happens on any chapter.
    Any time frame on when its getting fixed?

    My update alerts aren’t showing up at all. It’s been two hours too since I updated one of my stories.

      same here. I’m using chrome, if that matters.

    Missing reviews here. I just updated and my review count claims 33 reviews, with only 31 showing up.

  36. SylviustheStrange

    09/21/2013 at 11:55 pm

    ^ I’ve been having the same problems. Not only was I experiencing that stupid server error, but now I can’t even properly look at the reviews sent to me. I am really annoyed. I know the admins probably have their hands full right now, but can you please fix this problem as quickly as you can?

    • SylviustheStrange

      09/21/2013 at 11:56 pm

      This is on, just to clarify.

    Not receiving updates for anything. Have to manually check for updates as I sift through my favorites, and my own stories. Not trying to be lazy; I thought you’d like to know.

    Alerts aren’t coming through! WTH is wrong. They were working just a few hours ago!

    I’ve been going on for a while on this ipad, and now it won’t let me log in! Is something wrong?!

    09/22/2013 at 3:31 pm

    I know this is like beating a dead horse but the visitor/views thing is still messed up. Anyone else have that yet? Any idea when you guys will fix it?

  41. marzydotes

    09/22/2013 at 4:05 pm

    I’m getting Error 1 messages on my updates after posting them.
